UPDATED: JAN 8, 2006 Every beer has its day. And Pater 6’s day was the day after Thanksgiving 2005. It was a glorious day. The sky wasblue the air was crisp. The ocean was very clear but a bit cold. We decided against the turkey leftovers and ate Pad Thai off my foot insead. Oh yeah, I forgot the beer was reddish brown in color.

Pours medium brown with a nice flluffy light tan head. Pleasant fruity aroma - grapes, apples, pleasantly sweet aroma. Taste is fairly sweet caramel, some dark fruits, with barely a touch of bitterness. Palate is fairly light. Not detecting any alcohol in the palate, but a very slight warmth in the belly. From Grapevine in Austin.

Pours dark red with a large eggshell head that leaves good lacing. Very fruity aroma, with Belgian yeast and spices. Fairly sweet at the beginning, with toffee, caramel, and raisins. The sweetness really comes through on the finish, which is excellently malty.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2007 One of my favourite beers yet. Very foamy head, but next to no carbonation once the head dies down. The head is unusually tasty. Very aromatic: extremely fruity, and never in an unpleasant way. Tastes much like wine. Sweet, but in a completely acceptable way. Oddly, I taste a lot of alcohol, but it’s not unpleasant. Sort of caramelly, but in a subtle way. Very enjoyable, and although pricey, not unreasonably so. In my opinion, this beer beats out a number of more expensive and rarer competitors. It’s also my favorite among the St. Bernardus brews.

UPDATED: JAN 10, 2006 Bottle (330ml). Poured clear deep copper with a beige lasting average head. Aroma of sweet whole-wheat bread dough, raisins, fruits, spices - really nice light caramel roast malt. Taste is mild, follows the aroma, somewhat lively and sweet. Pleasant, was expecting a blond, so bonus. Very mild.

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 12, 2005
Murky brown pour topped with a fluffy mocha head. Plums and prunes in the aroma. Roasted malts too, with a mild alcohol waft to back it all up. Wood and prunes in the mouth, roasted malts, with a fruity alcohol aftertaste. Smooth and creamy mouthfeel. Medium bodied. Pretty good.

wnp22 (698) - Toronto (Roncesvalles Village), Ontario, CANADA - NOV 11, 2005
Tasted in Toronto. Obtained from LCBO as part of some form of winter / fall line up. Tasted in Orval trappist glassware. Appearance is reddish brown with thin browinish / tobacco coloured head. Somewhat murky and amazingly disturbing....Aroma of plums, dried fruit and alcohol....Maybe even on a good day christmas pudding....Flavour is somewhat dry and crisp....not nearly as sweet, matly, deep dark and delicous as I would have expected....more on the slightly sweet to dry side with hints of nastyness lingeriing in the background, but only as a minor player and not as a lead character. Oh well, such is the beerian play of life....

Light, soft aroma of sweet malt, hits of vanilla, yeast. Neat and clean. Light brown with ruby hue. Impressive crown on top .Full bodied, bready malt based ale. Alcohol is present but this only help making great winter warmer. Very nice.
